Ante, my grandma made bread dough, then spread & rolled it out thinly on a table. She spread a mix of melted butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, honey & either a egg to thicken or milk to thin, all over it. Then sprinkled shopped walnuts & golden raisins all over & then rolled it up & baked it - after letting it rise again.
Not sure how it's spelled but pronounced po teet' sa.

That looks just like it - in your gallery!
I will email my cousin to find where my grandparents grew up. She was there to visit.
They grew up 20 miles (I don't know killometers) away from each other & met in Gilbert, Minnesota (north east). Minn. has high population of Yugoslavians.
I think I'll go make some poteetsa now .

I am from Calabria, far south of Italy. It is a good idea to get in touch, also because to acquire plants from the Us is almost impossible.

I take the occasion to tell you I am looking for Ice Cream Banana, Cali Gold and Tx Star, if anybody in Europe should have pups I could buy them.

Blessings

That was general idea to stay in touch couse of trades and info sharings. Most members on .org are from USA and they are too, too far away from us and about some other parts of world I dont even want to think about. I think that most difficult part of world for getting naners is our "old lady Europe".
Or we might been misorganisate? What do U think?

Bananas Brindando Re: Call for European members

Sir Jack sends his greetings from the Heart of the Europe, where the weather seems to be getting crazy this spring. Maximal temperature was 26°C for about 10 hours...

Anyways, I already (will) have some interesting naners, one promised to Kalabrian (and from Kalabrian ), One promised to maesy (and 2 from him, this kind and exotic loving guy lives in Switzerland, wonderful country where people speak maaaaany languages almost since their early childhood), one reserved for Dalmatiansoap (Pahari Kela) sometime in autumn. At the moment, just a few small naners, but soon, the nana republic. With your little help that means...

An advice for my good friend Dalmatiansoap. Please, make a list with all the information about the European members. (nickname on .org, City, Country, Part of Europe)

for instance, I am:

Jack Daw, Bratislava, Slovakia, Central Europe

Excellent idea, btw... We need to organize ouselves.

Basjoo rubra,red stemmed cavendish,red basjoo they're all the same plant and totally tender as you'd expect from a cavendish.I've tried these a few times now and killed them all to date,and thats in a heated greenhouse!
Outside they don't stand a chance,unless you're in southern europe of course where the weathers much nicer
